Notes / Commercial Description:
Va-va-voom! Our Temptress is seduction in a glass. Curvy in all the right places, this Imperial Milk Stout pours with a thick, milk chocolate head. Chocolate and caramel malt give it a rich and complex body while the lower carbonation gives the beer a silky mouth feel. She’s voluptuous, with a soft alcohol warmth that grows deeper with every sip. Take your time with her and she’ll reward you.

Ruby to deep brown in color with moderate head and good lacing.

Smell is coffee, vanilla, cream, malty sugar, and oak.

Taste is sweet malt, vanilla, booze, and coffee.

Mouthful is moderate and creamy but a touch watery. Carbonation is low. Finish lingers.

Overall a nice beer but a bit unbalanced. Aroma is there but the malt and booze take over the palate. I am glad i tried it but it fell a little flat for me.

Pours a dark chocolate color. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts but has a cloyingly sweet presence. Flavor is dark chocolate and a sweetness associated with the milk sugar. I don't get much of the vanilla. Overall this is a solid stout.

12oz bottle pours dark, espresso color. One finger, tan head recedes quickly but leaves a decent ring.

It pours kind of thin. Nice malty, sweet smell but not terribly strong. Lots of malt, but I'm not getting the chocolate or caramel. Minimal carbonation and medium body, slick, really easy to drink. Probably too easy for the 9.1% abv. Get more of the roasted malts in the flavor and some of the milk chocolate. Slight bitterness and a touch of booze at the finish.

Overall, this is one of the imperial stouts that really attracted me to this style, and a couple years later I still really like it. There are better examples out there, but you can't go wrong with the temptress.

Brought from the fridge and warmed up in the glass, pours jet black with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing.
Smells of raisin, lots of chocolate, and some cream.
Still quite carbonated and incredibly smooth and creamy.
Tastes of chocolate, malts, some cream, and little alcohol. A little vanilla presence as well. Sweet finish, with virtually no hop presence left.
